Pooping in the tent

Our 6 month old WBC poops in his tent every night. At what age do they stop doing so? Does anyone have any tricks to help? When we put towels on the floor of the tent, he climbs underneath them to sleep.

Re: Pooping in the tent

You could try putting in a soft washcloth or piece of towel so he poops on that, it's easier to change than the whole tent, until he's older and either stops doing it or doesn't need it anymore. He's still just a baby, hopefully we'll see some pics?

Re: Pooping in the tent

That's the point. Whatever we put in he lifts it up, and sleeps underneath it, hence pooping on the tent floor, instead of the washcloth.

Here's Pepe!

Re: Pooping in the tent

Couldn't you put a cloth on the bottom of the tent with long pieces of the cloth that wrap around to the bottom of the tent and secure them there with a clothespin or a chip clip, etc.? Then you can clean it daily.

Not mad at him at all. we love him! Like the idea of clip, but he peels up the back corner where u cannot clip. He too smart for us!
